    Yes, but I think there may be a discussion as to the length of the wait, and whether four years is appropriate. Personally I think maybe two years is long enough if you are originally from the associate country in question, Joyce for example, with the proviso that you can't move back again to the full nation. For someone like Hamish Marshall, I think four years is fine.

    To be honest, I'm not sure it is immediate anyway is it?

    Pretty sure there has been a qualifying period for the likes of Morgan and Joyce before him (or is that something the ECB has applied voluntarily?)

    All well in the england camp today. News from @zaltzcricket on Twitter:

    England's Tim Bresnan also available after recovering from emotional trauma of watching animated rabbit move classic Watership Down.

Seelaar their likely first choice spinner has never taken a ODI wicket against a non-associate and against the best associate side, Afghanistan, he averages close to 100 while its even worse for Adeel Raja, who averages close to 150 with the ball against Afghanistan + non-associates.
    Bowling does look to be a weak area of this Netherlands side. I think with RTD, if he can use his changes of pace, and bowl, as he does, pretty straight and accurate, I do believe he'll go well, but time will tell.

    Decent side for England today. Bopara in ahead of Yardy, Swann returning, probably as strong a side as we could field today imo.

    I think I like this side. Collingwood's been bowling really well, so I think that means Yardy isn't really required atm.

    We do have a few options with the ball for the fifth bowler, as you say, Collingwood's going well with the ball, we can also use Bopara, Trott, and KP. Decent looking side.

    AJ Strauss*, KP Pietersen, IJL Trott, IR Bell, PD Collingwood, RS Bopara, MJ Prior†, TT Bresnan, SCJ Broad, GP Swann, JM Anderson

    interesting team. 4 very good frontline bowlers, and 4 good part time options in the bowling lineup, probably second best in the comp to south africa. unlike poorer bowling teams like india and australia, i dont see them conceding huge scores. Batting wise a fewplayers who can be great in one day cricket if they're in form, but not enough fire power in the lower order.

    Guys like pietersen up the top, trott/bell in the middle and prior at the end will really have to be prolific and on top of their game if they are to do anything in the tournament.

    Good confident start by the Dutch. Ball going typically gun barrel straight at Nagpur, changes of length and pace will be crucial, so expect Broad to be our most dangerous quick bowler.

    Great start by the Dutch, playing really positive Cricket. I like the look of their batting lineup, RtD and Cooper can both bat a bit, along with the opening pair.
